life class: not lovely, but interesting

colourful nude, acrylic applied with a pallet knife on card, 64 cm x 45 cm

These are my most recent attempts. This one (above) was done with a knife and the paint was hard to control. I chose this method to set myself a challenge and to stop getting precious. As I’ve said in the title to this post, the result isn’t particularly lovely to look at, but that’s not the point. The point is to stretch myself.

The next two are warm-up sketches. The model in the life class is excellent; interesting poses and she keeps really still .
